As I say, many have done it with no problems, including us twice with 8 dogs each time......But its a gamble and therefore up to you....
You could get the blood test done in the Uk before you leave and it does cover travel through a non listed country and back
Pets travelling to an unlisted third country that have been identified, vaccinated and blood sampled 30 days after vaccination and can show a positive titration result before leaving the UK (or other Member State) may re-enter the UK without having to meet the 3 month waiting period. The vaccination, blood sample and positive titration result must be recorded on the pet passport which is required to be shown on re-entry into the EU.
Im mad, so i caught a bus from my house in Clacton UK to Popovo Bulgaria. A dog and its owner got on at Victoria London, and got off at Sofia BG. We went through Serbia with no problems that I could see. And it only took me 3 days.
I have just explained to my wife, which I never before , that the nightmare scenario is such that all 8 dogs got their passports stamped/revoked and then you cannot get into the next EU country. Virtually landlocked in Serbia for 4 months whilst they go through the mill again. She freaked which is why I never explained it to her before the journey and said if she had known she wouldn't have taken the risk.......
Yes, we did it, and many many people have, and I have yet to read a single story of such problems. But the rules and systems are in place that it could happen, chances are very slim, but it could.
Only you can decide the risk factor....These are the facts do with them what you will.
We're trying to take a rescue dog to an adoptive home in the UK and were looking at flying her as the road transport options appear limited these days - but it costs almost 700 euro to be processed at Heathrow. Now we have to wait for a transport by road, which could be weeks.
